Brandon Banks found guilty in Vanderbilt rape trial

A former Vanderbilt University football player has been found guilty of aggravated rape in the 2013 gang rape of an unconscious female student.

After deliberating for 15 hours, a jury found Brandon Banks guilty of two out of seven charges on Friday evening, including one count of aggravated rape and one count of aggravated sexual battery.

The 23-year-old was found not guilty on five other counts.

Banks now faces up to 15 years in prison for the aggravated rape charge alone. He will be sentenced on August 18. He was emotionless as the verdict was delivered and was taken into custody immediately after.

He was one of four ex-players charged with assaulting the 21-year-old woman in a dorm room at the university in Nashville, Tennessee four years ago.

Should be maximum jail time for all involved.

That was an expensive "piece of tail." Just what he deserves.
